The Hartford Business Journal highlights the developer of the first Come Home to Downtown building to open. 99 West Main Street in New Britain was a project made successful by Avner Krohn’s patience and persistence.

This mixed-use retail and residential building includes sixteen above-market luxury apartments on the upper floors, and retail at street level.

“Avner saw a community he could invigorate,” said New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart. “Together with three different administrations he worked to preserve the city’s historic past while focusing on its future.”
